This was an absolute shocker!!!!!!!

Bantamweight Championship bout: Miguel Torres vs. Brian Bowles
Bowles defeated Torres via KO (punches) at 3:57 of round 1 to become the new WEC Bantamweight Champion.

Unbelievable. Speechless.

Bantamweight bout: Joseph Benavidez vs. Dominick Cruz
Cruz defeated Benavidez via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28)

Excellent, high-action fight. Benavidez did very well, considering the HUGE reach advantage Cruz had.

Lightweight bout: Ricardo Lamas vs. Danny Castillo
Castillo defeated Lamas via TKO (strikes) at 4:15 of round 2.

Another great, fast-paced fight.

Bantamweight bout: Jeff Curran vs. Takeya Mizugaki
Mizugaki defeated Curran via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)

Really disagree with this one. Curran totally dominated the last round. I don't see how the judges could have possibly scored it for Mizugaki (except for him being on top on the ground). That said, I do like Mizugaki. But they gave him this one.

Featherweight bout: Leonard Garcia vs. Jameel Massouh
Garcia defeated Massouh via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)

Really could have gone either way. Garcia dropped Massouh in the first, Massouh choked Garcia out in the second, third was a draw, IMHO.

A great card! Way better than UFC 101. Vids here while they last:

No surprise, but the vastly better WEC 42 card guys got paid much less than the so-so UFC 101 card guys:
